Every week, I comment about how much this show has declined, but this is the first time that they’ve truly started pulling plot lines out of thin air. I think they’re trying to make something out of nothing with the whole Adrian-Clementine drama, when there’s not really a good reason for Adrian to be jealous of her. She had no idea that Grace and Jack were going to be at their apartment, so there’s no reason for her to assert her territory as a friend. Yes, she could still be going after Ricky, but I’d like to think she’s past that. Even if she is, then why would she care if another girl is trying to break him up with Amy? I also find it ironic that Adrian asked why Amy could still be nice to Clementine after she slept with Jack and could be trying to sleep with Ricky. The real answer? Because she’s the only real Christian among the three of them.
Speaking of hypocrites, it’s also a little ridiculous that Kathy doesn’t like girls because of their cattiness, and then she goes and finds the vilest, most sarcastic pair to be her best friends. And why did they name her Kathy when they already have an adult character named Kathleen? It’s too similar. They should have named her Katie, or one of the million other normal names in the English language that sounds nothing like Kathleen.
Her character has been rather lackluster this season, but now I honestly love Camille in this episode and I think Ben completely deserved to get socked in the face. After getting let off for the fire and the allegations he made against Omar, he needed some sort of punishment. If he wanted to confront Leo about Camille, he should have done it in private like an adult.
Even though I also can’t stand Dylan, and Henry may only be trying to date her to get back Ben, I’d like to see her fall for him. Even if it’s mostly a scam, I think he does have feelings for her, and if he doesn’t, then she deserves to get knocked down a peg. I’m proud of Alice for ratting on Ben, and I think they’d make a good couple if Leo can get over the fact that they slept together, because she truly cares about him. However, Ben’s the type of guy that can’t stand the sight of not only one, but both of his ex-girlfriends with anyone else, and therefore won’t be capable of having a healthy relationship even with the most normal girl.
